Demolition derby fans will be excited to see even more crashing and smashing at this year’s Telkwa Barbeque.
The “Big Iron” derby is will not be accompanied bt the new “Little Iron” class, which will include smaller, safer vehicles.
These new cars are typically easier to prepare, which BV Kinsmen Concert Chair Mike Henfrey hopes can attract new competitors.
“Maybe building a derby car is a daunting task for [new participants] because it’s a lot of work but this is something they can do on a more limited scale and a more limited budget,” he says.
The Telkwa barbeque will take place on Labour Day Weekend.
